Video Encoder/Accelerator

Just came across elgato's H.264 Encoder/Acclerator:

http://www.elgato.com/elgato/na/mainmenu/products/Turbo264HD/product1.en.html

While I don't work in HD, my thought is that this hardware/application might allow me to export more quickly and continue to edit other projects while doing so. (I work exclusively for podcast and web consumption.)

Is my logic flawed? Does anybody have experience with this or a similar device?

What's wrong with saving all your encoding to H.264 for overnight? You just add the job to compressor, hit Go when it's time to go home, and let the computer do the work while you're sleeping.

At last report, doing that didn't cost a thing... just a little pre-planning.

Great idea in theory. Unfortunately, I have daily production requirements. Often, I have to get a video shot, edited and out the door all in one morning.

The Matrox solution is considerably more expensive.
